The Vine Street Garage is next door to the North Market and only one-half block from the convention center. If you park in this garage, walk east towards High Street and directly into the convention center doors. Follow the signs. The registration booths are located in front of Exhibit Hall C.
  • The South Garage is located between the Hyatt Regency and Drury Inn on East Nationwide Blvd. If you park here, walk through the hotel and into the adjoining convention center. Once you pass through the glass doors, as you enter the convention center, take the escalators down to the main corridor. The registration booths are located in front of Exhibit Hall C.

This is your third closest parking option:

  • The East Surface Lot near North 4th Street and East Nationwide Blvd.  If you park here, walk towards the west from the lot to the Hyatt Regency. Walk through the hotel and into the adjoining convention center.

Several openings have become available for The Ohio EMS Conference and related events!

Recently we asked all our conference registrants to let us know if their plans had changed and they could no longer attend next week’s EMS conference or other conference-day events. By doing this, we could fill any newly opened seats with people from the wait list.

Thanks to everyone that notified us they could no longer attend, we now have several seats available for the conference and other events. If interested, visit The Ohio EMS Conference page and register through the EventBrite link as soon as possible. These open seats will go quickly!

You may still be able to join us for The Ohio EMS Conference

We’ve had an overwhelming response to this year’s conference and have reached capacity for all events.

Please visit our EventBrite registration site to check for available seats or to join our wait list if none are available.

We want as many people as possible to participate. If you have registered and can no longer attend, please contact ems@ohiohealth.com at your earliest convenience so we may remove you from the roster. This will allow someone on the wait list to join us.

 

Thanks,

The OhioHealth EMS Team

OhioHealth Grant Medical Center Re-Verified as a Level I Trauma Center!

IMG_0037.JPGWe are proud to share with you that OhioHealth Grant Medical Center has been re-verified as a Level I Trauma Center by the Verification Review Committee (VRC), an ad hoc committee of the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Level I re-verification means we continue to provide the highest quality of surgical care to trauma patients. A variety of criteria must be met to be verified, including having specialized surgeons on-call and in the hospital around the clock, a helipad to transport patients, physicians and nurses specially trained in trauma care, state-of-the-art diagnostic and testing equipment, providing injury prevention programs in the community and conducting research in an effort to improve trauma care in the state and across the nation. The VRC of the ACS has awarded Grant its certificate of verification every three years since 1993. Grant Level I Trauma is one of the most active and fastest growing trauma centers in central Ohio, providing a full range of care to thousands of seriously injured patients regardless of severity or complexity.
